Playing Our Tune?

“On one part of the sidewalk, longtime antiabortion demonstrator Coleman Boyd belts out a steady stream of Christian music, with lyrics about Jesus’s love for the unborn. ‘Your precious baby is going to be murdered in this place,’ Boyd, a physician, preaches between songs. Nearby, supporters of the Jackson Women’s Health Organization, the last abortion clinic in Mississippi, turn up their own playlist of ‘Jagged Little Pill,’ by Alanis Morissette, and other female empowerment anthems. The struggle on the sidewalk will soon play out at the Supreme Court, where the Jackson clinic — known as “the Pink House” for its bubble-gum color — is at the center of the most consequential women’s reproductive rights case in decades.” WaPo (gift article for ND readers): The Mississippi clinic at the center of the fight to end abortion in America.
